General Advice and Recommendations:

  • Investigate how to obtain the same or equivalent medications before departure, in case a replacement is needed due to loss, inadequate supply due to travel interruptions, or the need to resupply maintenance medications if the trip is long-term.
  • Carry a written list of all medications taken, including trade and generic names, to facilitate obtaining medications.
  • If unable to determine whether the same drug is available (or whether an equivalent version of a medication exists internationally), work with a health care provider (in the home country or locally at the destination) or with a local pharmacist to select an effective alternative medication.
  • In general, mailing or couriering any kind of medication from one country to another is illegal.
